Cancellation Policy

You must cancel your registration by phone or email (see contact us) 24 hours prior to the scheduled class time.  If you do not do so and do not show for class your credit card will be charged the full amount for the number of reservations you made.  If you have reserved a date for a private party please see “parties” for our guidelines.

Severe Weather

Due to the extreme weather conditions  in Michigan during the winter we do reserve the right to cancel class if the weather is too severe.  If there are any questions to whether we are cancelling class there will be a notice posted one hour before scheduled class time on the HOME page of our wesite to inform you of our decision.  If class has not been cancelled and you decide not to show our regular cancellation policy will be in effect.
